michelle obama. [ cheers and applause ] >> one by one, he dissected the romney campaign's major arguments against president obama, including attacks about health care reform and medicare made by vice presidential candidate paul ryan. >> that $716 billion is exactly to the dollar the same amount of medicare savings that he had in his own budget. [ applause ] >> it takes some brass to attack a guy for doing what you did. >> reporter: he went on, addressing welfare reform and the economy. >> in tampa, the republican argument against the president re-election was actually pretty simple. pretty snappy. it went something like this. we left him a total mess. he hadn't cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in. >> reporter: he acknowledged the economy is still in recovery. but he asks -- >> are we better off than we were when he took office? >> reporter: president clinton did work in a plug or two for his own economic performance in the '90s. >> people ask me all the time how we got our budgets passed. what new ideas did we bring to washington? i always bring a one-word answer. ar
. look what has happened over the past couple of days. to call what first lady obama, michelle obama did on tuesday tonight a speech is to almost be an insult. that was a conversation. that was a national conversation about her values, her family values, and what she and the president, how they were raised. how he governs. that was enormous. that speech will be talked about for the next five decades in what michelle obama did. last night, bill clinton, that was a textbook explanation of what's really been going on over the last four years and the president broke it down as if he was talking to each of us individually in a personal conversation. he just laid out the case, which i think sets a platform for tonight, for the president to hit a home run. >> all right. one of the parts of political conventions when there's a president running for re-election a lot of chatter who is looking at 2016. you're going to like this, mr. mayor, cory booker visited the iowa delegation and revealed i had 94-year-old grandmother was born in iowa. >> the population of iowa grows -- there's way more people
is much different in that regard. you listen to president clinton last night and michelle obama. our keynote speaker versus their keynote speaker. tonight from the vice-president and president. people are going to leave and they will get were these guys are going, understand their vision for this country and how we should get there. i think that is moving the ball forward. >> bring a clinician's eye for mitt romney. >> to get a little more insight into himself as a person. i am sure he gained from that. the downside was he did not give anybody a sense of really what he would do other than repeal everything that obama has done. >> that might be popular in some places. >> it certainly was popular in that hall. but in the country, i do not think that is what people are looking for. they're not looking to refi the battles of yesterday to go there looking to move forward. they're not looking to repeat the policies of the last decade. he simply did not answer the question, what would you do and where would you leave? for that reason, i think his speech was a missed opportunity. >> in your
have a funny question for you after listening to nancy pelosi speak now and thinking back on michelle obama last night talking about being the mom and she nancy pelosi introduced herself as a mother and a grandmother. and we saw her daughter and granddaughter in the crowd. is it possibly a strong, efficient, accomplished political woman anymore without saying you are a mom first? >> i am not a mom. i guess it is -- absolutely. but i have to laugh about all the times where nancy pelosi has described her leadership in terms of motherhood and in terms of being a woman. and i think it does make her a powerful leader. and i think my life experiences that i bring to the job everyday also make me a strong leader. >> and can i follow-up. michelle obama could have told an alternative story that she went to princeton, she went to harvard law and became a successful lawyer. she went to the chicago hospital system making $300,000 a year. top 1%. it was a successful career story. and she probably had doubts about leaving that behind. why is that not possible to tell that story? >> well, it is poss
michelle obama. [applause] i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i probably nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party -- proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. in tampa a few days ago we heard a lot of talk about how the president and the democrats do not believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everyone to bea dependet now on the government, how bad we are on the economy. this alternative universe says that everyone of us in this room who amounts to anything, we are all completely self made. one of the greatest german the democratic party ever had, bob strauss and -- which is rated one of the greatest democrat, bob strauss says every american wants you to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself, but he admitted it ain't so. we democrats think the country works better with real opportunities. with business and government working together to promote growth and proudly share prosperity. we believe we are all in this together is a far better philosophy than we are
extreme, bigoted voices in his own party -- wait a minute. this is the same barack obama that took $1 billion from bill maher. he never called sarah palin, you, michele bachmann. >> this is such a grand theater to distract from the failures of obamacare. remember, this sandra fluke rhoads to fame in a few matter of months, somebody who have been primed as a tool for the feminist left. she came to fame in order to what? pedal free birth control. this she is a standard bearer of the democratic party. >> sean: the fact she is here and how the relationship got started and then think bill maher gives $1 million to obama and called sarah palin the c-word -- >> let's distract from the real war on conservative women and let's talk about the war on pro-life democratic women. they have no voice on this platform. there are 21 million democrats out there, sean, that identify themselves as pro-life. what do they think of this abortion palosa. >> sean: you are right. they are not talking about the economy. will this be the convention where on the floor of the democratic convention, delegates boo'd
